Welcome to the primary page!
In Plymouth, there are currently sixty-nine primary schools. The vast majority of primaries are in a Multi-Academy Trust of which there are twelve in the city.
In September 2022, the primary phase joined Plymouth’s Place-based approach to school improvement.
Primary headteachers with their respective leadership teams completed a city-wide SEF, the detail of which has created the primary phase’s contribution to One Plan for Plymouth Schools.
All primary schools in the city are represented by one board known as the 'Primary Special School Improvement Partnership'. The board meets 3 times a year and is representative of school leaders in either Chief Executive Officer (CEO) or Headteacher roles currently working within Plymouth primary schools. Irrelevant of status, all schools; maintained or academy have the opportunity to engage with Plymouth's place-based school improvement work. Stuart Tulloch-Thomas is the chair of this board and headteacher of Pennycross School.
It's hoped that having one central 'virtual' platform to collaborate from will enable all schools to achieve the best possible outcomes for the children in their care.
